Laptop screen will not turn on

After several times of pushing the power button on and off, the screen comes on normally and works fine until I shut it off again, unless I close the lap top, then I have to start all over again, the screen remains black until I push the power button on and off again. It's about 3 years old, Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Thanks, I've tried that and do think it may be the joint. If I close the computer, it loses the picture and it takes me pushing the on and off button on and off a few times to get the screen back. Not sure how to fix the joint, any suggestions? Thanks for your help!

    Thank you, I will try that.

I have one suggestion, have you tried the power options in the control panel and ajusting the sleep setting and and setting keys to do certain things like turning the computer on and off and resuming from hibernation or sleep modes, this might not be a cure for the problem but is somthing that you could try. The problem may be a simple one, the power switch may have a dry solder joint, that could explain why you have to push it a few times to start the computer. post back if the power option one helps at all.

    If you feel comfortable taking the lap top apart, then you could check to see if anything is being moved out of place when you open and close the lid, it could be the cables connecting the inverter board to the screen, so every time you open or close the connection is interupted therefore causing the problem you are having. I think your best bet is to take to a laptop repair shop to see if they can diagnose exactly what is causing the problem and maybe suggest a repair for you.

Firstly, connect the laptop to an external monitor and see how it displays. If you don't have any display problems then you can discount the graphics card part of the laptop motherboard. The problem could be down to your power settings, specifically the sleep settings. Navigate to control panel and find your power settings. The quickest way to to test that they haven't changed to an odd setting is too just put them back to the default setting. Lastly if this hasn't helped then make sure that the laptop is free from any malicious software that could be causing you issues. Other than that you may have a damaged cable from the motherboard to the LCD via the inverter. HP'd are prone to fragile cables so worth getting this checked.

Black screen when turned onno display


There are several reasons that your Toshiba laptop screen may not come on, even if the laptop appears to be running, and several options you may try to get your screen back up and running without an expensive service call.


Common causes for a blank screen include a backlight that is turned off, a display toggled to an external monitor and improper shutdown errors.


To avoid blank screen errors after your current error is fixed, make sure to follow all instructions in your user's guide to care for your Toshiba computer.


Shine a flashlight directly at your screen and look for an image.

If you see one, this means the backlight on your laptop is off but the screen is still working. This backlight normally turns off only when your screen is closed.


Look for a small metal or plastic pin near one of the screen hinges.

The screen pushes this pin in when it is closed, so if the pin is stuck in the screen closed position, the backlight will remain off.


Tap the pin several times to release it.

You may need to use a small object, such as a pencil tip or straightened paper clip, to reach it on some models.


Monitor Toggle


Press and hold down the "Fn" key if you do not see an image when you use the flashlight.


Tap the "F5" key several times while the "Fn" key is pressed.

This will cycle your screen through the various options that toggle the display to an external monitor.


Attach an external monitor, restart the computer and try this method again if no image appears on the laptop screen.


Click "Start," "Control panel," "Hardware and sound," then "Device manager "using the external monitor if you get an image there but cannot toggle the image back to your LCD.


Select the "Monitor" option to expand your selection and select your LCD monitor from the device list.


Click the "Driver" tab and select "Update" to update the driver, as this error is likely caused by a software driver error.


Force Restart


Press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down completely.


Check the indicator lights at the edge of your laptop to see if the computer is truly off or if it has simply gone into hibernation mode.


If it is off, all lights will be off except the battery-related lights if you have a charger plugged in. In hibernation mode, the power light will blink slowly.


Press the power button to restart the computer again after leaving it off for 15 to 20 seconds. This may fix the problem.


If the blank screen returns or you get a flash of images and then a blank screen, move on to the next step.


Force Power Down


Unplug your laptop from the power source.


Remove the battery by pressing outward on the battery latch and pulling the battery unit completely out of the computer.


Press the power button several times to completely discharge the computer.


Replace the battery and plug the computer back in after about 30 seconds.


Press the power button to turn on the computer.

If you get an error screen upon startup, choose to restart Windows normally.

This error is caused by improper shutdown procedures.


Hope this helps

I have Vaio E-Series. I closed several programs quickly and now the "Logging Off..." screen has been up for an hour. The laptop will not shut down.


Go ahead and hold the power button down until it shuts off all the way. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery. Now hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds and release. Plug in the power cord but leave the battery out for now and turn it on. If you get a message when it starts up just choose to start normally. It should come right back on unless there is another problem that you haven't listed. Once it comes back on you can put your battery back in and all should be fine.

My HP Compaq nx 6110 freezes afta the HP invent screen and doesnt go beyond that, and if i plug the adapter the system boots automatically but not beyond the HP invent screen. Please help.


Hello

Press and hold "CTRL," "ALT" and "Delete" at the same time. Wait and see if a prompt window loads. If one does you can select the program causing the crash and close it. This allows you to return to using the laptop.

Push and hold the power button until the system turns off. Typically, you need to hold the power button down for a few moments before the laptop shuts down.

Remove the power cord from the laptop if the power button does not turn the computer off. Occasionally this can occur, in which case you need to find an alternative way of cutting the power.

Flip the laptop over if the power button is not turning the computer off. Find the battery compartment on the bottom of the laptop and remove it from the computer. Momentarily the computer shuts down. Leave the battery out for a few moments.

Insert the battery back into the computer and press the power button. Shortly, the computer restarts and begins to load the operating system.


press F1 at start up to check the bios for power management settings as perhaps there is a conflict to the settings in Windows. Also I would check what is running in startup (msconfig) and leave nothing but essential antivirus and antispyware. I have seen Norton or MacAfee come up and cause this on several HP Laptops until I uninstalled every last bit of it

also ensure the laptop is in a roomy place a overheating could also be the cause

I try to turn on my laptop, and it won't turn on. When it originally happened I was on it, without the charger plugged in, online. It was working fine, and then all of a sudden it shut off, and will no...


Your battery is probably completely discharged. This can prevent the laptop from starting even WITH the power plugged in. You might try removing the battery, then plug in the AC power adapter. Push the power button and HOLD IT down for 30 seconds (your laptop may or may not start up. If it starts, then shut it down normally.)
Replace the battery. With the AC still plugged in, repeat the start proceedure above. Leave the laptop on until the battery is fully charged. If this doesn't work, then your battery may be bad (this can happen all at once) or worse, your charging system isn't working (less likely.) Your power adapter could also be bad - is the green light on when it's plugged in?

You may have to repeat the proceedure a few times before it works as the battery needs to show a little charge before it will start.

Once started, press F2 while on the dell logo to go to the setup screen. Select the power options. and you should see if the battery is detected. If battery is detected, it should say "charging".

If none of this works, call Dell technical support 800 822-8965 for further assistance

You need to reset the video settings. With the PS3 off, press AND HOLD the power button down until it beeps several times and then shuts down. Once shut down, turn it on normally and it should come up w/ video.

I'm having the same problem, but I don't want to have to turn off my computer EVERY time it does this. (I have not been able to shut down the laptop normally because it goes into sleep every time.) I've heard that after 3 hours it builds up an eletrical charge and you have to take the battery out, but I havn't had it on for 3 hours at a time.

Toshiba M45-S165 startup issues


This is normally a motherboard issue. I had one with the same symptoms and I had to replace the motherboard. Worked great after the board was replaced. I had to replace the board because unlike your issue mine stopped working all together. It did take a while before it quit though. Just a note: I have had to replace several of these motherboards for customers as well. If your LCD is broken, you may be better off to save your data and put it in a new laptop that would include a warranty unless your super fond of the machine or you have access to inexpensive parts.
Hope this helps...
